Happy birthday from the MSF office! 1


Here at MSF towers, celebrations have been in full swing! We have raffled knitted goodies (some that staff have made), raising £70 for the p/hop pot! We have also had real cake brought in by Clare (carrot and orange AND coffee and walnut)… And we sang a little song. Check it out…..

Just want to say as well that it has been fantastic updating the office on the p/hop project in our Monday meetings over the past year – I’m pretty sure there’s a few who still have no idea what I’m talking about, but I think for all it is the source of constant amusement.

And don’t get me wrong – this is not a bad thing…. Nothing like this has ever been done for MSF UK and I think the philosophy behind p/hop and the fact that it has evolved and grown and involved so many different people (many of them non-knitters and completely unsuspecting ;-), makes people laugh.

As you know, the work MSF does in the field is very serious. The news we hear from our doctors, nurses, logisticians etc on a daily basis can be uplifting but at the same time they are where they are because something is drastically wrong, and that is always sad. You guys, the p/hoppers,  engage with MSF in such a lovely way that it has a really positive impact on the people working here in the office, supporting our guys in the field.

I can confidently say that if you now say ‘knitting’ to people that work here, they will say ‘p/hop’ whether they get it or not 😉

So here’s to all of you, for bringing a smile to the faces of all of us! Look forward to more of the same…..
